DAY 1 to 3
On arrival in Zambia you will be met at Lusaka Airport and will connect to your flight to Mfuwe. This flight will take an hour and will transport you into the country’s best game viewing area. You will be met at Mfuwe by our staff and driven to camp where you will have time to settle in before brunch.
That evening your guide will introduce you to one of Africa’s finest National Parks, renowned for its variety of wildlife the Luangwa never fails to impress. After dark you will search for predators on the prowl and the myriad of smaller nocturnal animals that make these night drives so interesting.
Dinner is served in different locations each night. You will have the choice of eating with other camp guests or in secluded privacy perhaps on the verandah of your room or on the deck overlooking the lagoon.
DAY 4 & 5
A taste of luxury awaits you at Mchenja which is set under the shade of immense ebony trees. The five individually designed tents each have a bath inside as well as an open, en-suite shower and toilet. The main chitenje (lounge) houses a small plunge pool alongside the bar and sitting area and meals are usually taken on the river bank. You will be able to do both game walks and drives and the wildlife viewing in this area is some of the best in the Park
DAY 6 to 8
Your flight from Mfuwe is via Lusaka and will drop you at Royal Airstrip and then onto Chongwe River Camp, idyllically set on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers. The spacious, open-fronted suites offer private views across the Zambezi; this is a most romantic destination with the steep escarpment behind you and the Zambezi in front. Activities are varied; you may choose a sunset boating jaunt, drifting downstream watching buffalo and elephant playing in the waters as the sun turns them pink, a drive or a walk or for the more adventurous, a paddle in canoes along one of the many channels frequented by hippo and elephant.
DAY 9 & 10
The flight from Royal transits Lusaka again on its way to Livingstone where you are met and driven to Tongabezi Camp. If you are staying at Sindabezi Island, you will be boated into camp. These camps have been described as some of the most romantic in Africa; you are raised above the river and whether in bed, in the bath or just lounging around the room your views of the Zambezi are breathtaking.
Two nights spent in the Livingstone area will give you a great opportunity to experience all there is to do; an up-close view of the Falls is a must, perhaps take a “Flight of the Angels” which will take you by microlight or helicopter high above the ground. There are also a host of adrenalin activities on offer but do save time to enjoy the tranquility around camp.
